The remarkable new novel in the Doc Ford series by New York Timesbestselling author Randy Wayne White.
Doc Fords old friend, General Juan Garcia, has gone into the lucrative business of smuggling Cuban baseball players into the U.S. He is also feasting on profits made by buying historical treasures for pennies on the dollar. He prefers what dealers call HPC items--high-profile collectibles--but when he manages to obtain a collection of letters written by Fidel Castro between 196062 to a secret girlfriend, its not a matter of money anymore. Garcia has stumbled way out of his depth.
First Garcia disappears, and then the man to whom he sold the letters. When Doc Ford begins to investigate, he soon becomes convinced that those letters contain a secret that someone, or some powerful agency, cannot allow to be made public.
A lot happened between Cuba and the United States from 196062. Many men died. A few more will hardly be noticed.
From the Hardcover edition.
Doc Ford has long lived a double life. This time, it may finally have caught up to him. The electrifying new thriller from the New York Times-bestselling author. “I’ll make an example of someone close to you.” On a moonless night on Sanibel Island, Florida, marine biologist Marion “Doc” Ford carefully watches a video of a hooded man executing three hostages. The man is an American working with ISIS, and in the next few days, it’ll be Ford’s job, as part of his shadowy second life, to make sure he never kills anybody else again. But a lot can go wrong in a few days, and Ford has no way of knowing that not only will the operation prove to be a lot more complicated than he has anticipated, but that he’ll end up bringing those complications back with him to the small community of boaters, guides, lovers, and friends in Dinkin’s Bay, where he’s long made his home. Someone has taken Ford’s actions very personally, and now no one there is safe – least of all, Ford himself. “White continues to provide thinking readers with action-packed thrillers that are also thoughtful and informative,” writes Bookreporter.com. “By the end, you won’t be able to read fast enough.” Better get started now. From the Hardcover edition.
Hannah Smith returns in the stunning new adventure in the New York Times–bestselling series by the author of the Doc Ford novels. A fishing guide and part-time investigator, Hannah Smith is a tall, strong Florida woman descended from many generations of the same. But the problem before her now is much older even than that. Five hundred years ago, Spanish conquistadors planted the first orange seeds in Florida, but now the whole industry is in trouble. The trees are dying at the root, weakened by infestation and genetic manipulation, and the only solution might be somehow, somewhere, to find samples of the original root stock. No one is better equipped to traverse the swamps and murky backcountry of Florida than Hannah, but once word leaks out of her quest, the trouble begins. “There are people who will kill to find a direct descendant of those first seeds,” a biologist warns her--and it looks like his words may be all too prophetic.
Murder, sunken treasure, and pirates both ancient and modern send Doc Ford on a nightmare quest in the thrilling new novel in the New York Times-bestselling series.
Marine biologist Doc Ford has been known to help his friends out of jams occasionally, but he's never faced a situation like this.
His old pal Carl Fitzpatrick has been chasing sunken wrecks most of his life, but now he's run afoul of the Florida Division of Historical Resources. Its director, Leonard Nickelby, despises amateur archaeologists, which is bad enough, but now he and his young "assistant" have disappeared--along with Fitzpatrick's impounded cache of rare Spanish coins and the list of uncharted wreck sites Fitz spent decades putting together. Some of Fitz's own explorations have been a little...dicey, so he can't go to the authorities. Doc is his only hope.
But greed makes people do terrible things: rob, cheat, even kill. With stakes this high, there's no way the thieves will go quietly--and Doc's just put himself in their crosshairs.
The Red Citrus Trailer Park is inhabited mostly by illegal laborers. But the steroid-powered park manager and his grotesquely muscular girlfriend want to sell the park for some easy money-and they'll do whatever it takes to drive the residents out. Their problem is a young girl who the laborers believe talks to God. When the girl witnesses the manager dumping a corpse into a lake, he knows that she has to be silence permanently.
The girl's only hope for survival: marine biologist Doc Ford, who must search through an underground nation, trek through wildlife, and defeat an assortment of bad guys...and hope he reaches her in time.
In the new novel from New York Times bestselling author Randy Wayne White, Doc Ford is the only hope for an island of hostages.
On one of Floridas private islands, a notorious Russian black marketer is hosting a reception. Doc Ford only wanted to get an underwater look at the billionaires yacht. But when he surfaces, he gets a look at something hed rather not see.
A group of violent, armed men have taken control of the island, their true identity unknown. Whatever the motive, they threaten to kill the hostages one by one unless their demands are met--after which they might kill everyone anyway.
Communications from the island have been cut off, and Ford knows he has to act. Luckily, the militants do not know Fords capabilities, or that he is still on the loose. But that situation wont last for longand the clock is ticking.
New York Times bestselling author Randy Wayne White spins another terrific Florida tale* in this thriller of bio-terror and extreme revenge.
It starts with a simple request: check up on the mysteriously reclusive biologist brother of an old friend. But what Doc Ford stumbles upon in the doctors secluded island home is a nightmare. He has hanged himself--and his body is host to a rare strain of feeding, breathing parasites. Its not an accident. Neither is the fact that the flesh eaters are multiplying in the infested Florida waters. A biological catastrophe has arrived. And only Doc Ford can find out why, and stop it from spreading further...
Doc Ford returns to his stilt house on Dinkin's Bay to find an old friend and one-time lover waiting for him. Her real-estate developer husband has disappeared and been pronounced dead, and she's sure there's worse to follow-and she's right. Following the trail, Ford ends up deep in the Everglades, at the gates of a community presided over by a man named Bhagwan Shiva (formerly Jerry Singh). Shiva is big business, but that business has been a little shaky lately, and so he's come up with a scheme to enhance both his cash and his power. Of course, there's the possibility that some people could get hurt and the Everglades itself damaged, but Shiva smells a killing.
And if that should turn out to be literally, as well as figuratively, true...well, that's just too damned bad.
Replete with passion and rich, pungent prose and some of the best suspense characters anywhere in fiction, Everglades is the finest work yet from an extraordinary talent.
In a remote Florida lake, a cave collapses, trapping Doc Ford and two of his friends. Ford manages to escape and surfaces to find help-but two ex-cons are waiting for him. They're intent on diving to the bottom of the deep lake and finding the remains of a legendary plane, supposedly loaded with gold. Ford's expertise is just what they need. And if he doesn't help, Ford and his friends are dead in the water.
